The following was left by Gill, Paula's s-i-l on another myeloma sufferers blog yesterday.
"I'm Paula's sister in law Gill. So so sorry to hear of Sean's passing. I can
tell you that Paula was heartbroken when she heard the news. I am sorry to post
here but Bernard wanted me to get information to all Paula's wonderful online
friends and I am not really sure how to do it. Paula has had the most horrendous
few weeks. The last chemo treatment into her spinal fluid caused extremely
severe side effects and she has been so poorly. Last night it was decided to
stop further treatment and just make Paula as comfortable as possible. I have
just come home from hospital with my son Neil and Bernard and wonderful Aunty
Ann are still sat with Paula. It was a hard night as Paula has a few episodes of
distress and agitation. However, when I left she was peaceful and far more
comfortable. Thank you so much for the messages you sent to Paula on the ward. I
don't know how you did it far too computer technical for me. I read each one to
her and I just know she heard every word. Please feel free to contact me through
Paula's blog (I'll have to just go through the comments part) or we can talk on
facebook. God bless to you all."
I know that most of you who read our blog will already know the news, but I wanted to make sure that people like Dave and Lynne in OZ, who met Paula at our wedding last year, and Mike C. too, knew what was happening.
When this photo was taken Paula had actually escaped from the hospital for the day, between her 12 hourly IV antibiotics! I hope you will also note the pints belonging to Bernard and Dave!
Mike and I are due to visit her tomorrow (Saturday).
